Hayden Kanizer Car Accident Fund

We are Michael & Khara Bond of Newburgh, IN and our nephew Hayden Kanizer and his fiancé Shaina Oakley (pictured), were victims of a fatality car accident that claimed the life of Shaina's father on August 17th.  Hayden is presently in critical-care at Methodist Hospital with life-threatening injuries and at this time he only has partial feeling below the waist.  He has undergone surgery to his spinal cord and back, and will be having facial reconstruction surgeries later this week.

As a result of this tragic accident, Hayden will be facing tremendous financial obstacles both for his health care as well as his existing obligations as he will be unable to work for the foreseeable future.

Prior to the accident, Hayden was an honor student at Indiana State University, and was also employed at BW3's in Terre Haute, IN.  He and his fiancé were planning to be married in June of next year.

Hayden is a wonderful young man.  He's an excellent student, a caring son and brother and loves nothing more than spending time with his family.  He was a stand-out baseball player in high school and was offered athletic scholarships at various colleges.

We ask at this critical time that anyone able to help him navigate this tragedy, do so by donating to offset his hospital, living and school expenses.  100% of the money donated to this fund will be directly deposited into an account managed by Hayden and his mother, Missy Kanizer for the purposes detailed above.

Your generosity will never be forgotten - Hayden is one to always pay it forward.

Thank you...
